Anne Celeste Heche (pronounced Haysh; born May 25, 1969) is an American actress, director, and screenwriter.
Immediately after her high school graduation, Heche landed her first major TV role, that of good and evil twins Vicky and Marley on the NBC soap opera Another World. Heche made quite an impression with the complicated dual role, earning Daytime Emmy and Soap Opera Digest Awards. Heche taped her final episode of Another World in 1991 and the following year made a significant TV film debut alongside Jessica Lange in the Golden Globe-nominated adaptation of Willa Cather’s O Pioneers. She made her feature debut as Mary Jane Wilks in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1993) and gradually landed larger roles in I'll Do Anything (1994) and TV movies Against the Wall (1994) and Kingfish: A Story of Huey Long (1995), playing Huey Long's mistress.
Her breakthrough role was that of a friend of Demi Moore who falls victim to a hit man in the thriller The Juror (1996). She appeared alongside Moore, Sissy Spacek and Cher in the controversial abortion drama If These Walls Could Talk (1996). She went on to appear in the acclaimed indie Walking and Talking (1996) before appearing opposite Johnny Depp in Donnie Brasco (1997), as the wife of an FBI agent whose intensely guarded job as a mafia infiltrator threatens to destroy his own life and family. Heche then teamed with Tommy Lee Jones in the disaster flick Volcano (1997) and continued her rise with a well-reviewed turn as a presidential advisor in the political satire Wag the Dog (1997). She appeared in the horror film I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) and starred opposite Harrison Ford in the romantic adventure Six Days, Seven Nights (1998). In 1999, she starred as Marion Crane opposite Vince Vaughn in the poorly received remake of Psycho (1998). In 1999, she played the skeptical daughter of a woman proposed as a candidate for sainthood in The Third Miracle. Heche wrote and directed the Emmy-nominated HBO movie If These Walls Could Talk 2 (2000).
In 2001, Heche released the memoir Call Me Crazy. She had appeared in the Denzel Washington thriller John Q and also played Dr. Sterling in the long-delayed adaptation of Elizabeth Wurtzel's bestseller Prozac Nation (2001). She had a recurring role on the hit show Ally McBeal as the eccentric soulmate of John Cage during the 2000-01 season. Heche starred in the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Proof on Broadway. In 2004, Heche received an Emmy nomination for playing a drug-addicted mother who neglects her children in the Lifetime movie Gracie's Choice (2004). She starred alongside Nicole Kidman in the well-received independent film Birth and also appeared in a recurring role on the WB drama Everwood before returning to Broadway, where she was nominated for a Tony Award for a revival of Twentieth Century, starring opposite Alec Baldwin. She then took on a recurring role on Nip/Tuck in 2005 as an ex-mob wife and Witness Protection Program subject who requires plastic surgery. By the next fall, she was headlining her own primetime show, ABC’s dramedy Men in Trees where she starred as a transplanted New York author living in small town Alaska, which happens to be abundant with single men and few women. Men in Trees was canceled in May 2008, after a season shortened by the writer’s strike. Her most recent film is Spread, a sex comedy co-starring Ashton Kutcher released in 2009.
Heche currently stars in HBO's new series "Hung," a dark comedy that centers on a well-endowed but struggling high school basketball coach. Thomas Jane plays the lead character, Ray. Heche plays Ray's ex-wife, who is remarried. The actress replaces Kristin Bauer, who played the role in the pilot.
